I know it sounds weird, but didn't carrot cake sound weird before you tried it?

Avocado Lime Pie

Crust:
1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened (but use what you can get)
2 cups walnuts
4-5 dates (pitted), room temperature

Filling:
about 10 oz dates, minus the 4 or 5 in the crust, room temperature
1/2 cup lime juice, preferably from fresh limes
2 cups avocado, mashed

Optional topping:
A few strawberries, sliced

Use a food processor to chop/blend the crust ingredients. The texture will start to change when it's done, and it will feel sticky between your fingers. Press the mixture into a 10-inch pie pan.

Put the rest of the dates in the food processor and chop until they start to stick to the blades. Add the lime juice and process until you have a smooth paste. Add the mashed avocado and process until well mixed. Pour into the crust and refrigerate until firm.

Before serving, cover with sliced strawberries. (I add the strawberries before chilling.) Keep the pie covered so it doesn't dry out.

The avocado will start to turn brown if you don't eat the pie right away (and that's part of the reason I put strawberries on it), but it remains just as delicous!

This has become an Easter dinner regular in my family. It's gluten free, vegan and raw.
